Because of our extensive background in serving Central American immigrants, we are uniquely qualified to assist Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Nicaraguans and Hondurans. Due to the passage of NACARA the (Nicaraguan and Cuban Adjustment Relief Act), Central Americans who are eligible can adjust their status in the United States to that of lawful permanent residents. Special INS officers from Washington trained members of C- Visa's staff in the NACARA procedures. The NACARA provisions apply to refugees and asylees from African, Eastern European, Middle Eastern and Balkan communities as well.
Our client services are complete: accredited legal representation, photographs, translation of foreign documents and expert preparation of the correct INS forms.
Our fees are modest. Those who cannot afford them are never turned away.
